At a time when the Maersk Group has reduced its workforce to raise its competitiveness, investing in talent development and employee engagement is more important than ever. The Maersk Group aims to grow through the downturn, by focusing on investment opportunities and innovation, and people are one of the most important assets in that drive.
As global companies fine-tune and alter their supply chains, the Maersk Group businesses are at the heart of the changes and winning business in the process. China’s biggest car manufacturer, Geely Automobile Holdings Limited, is one example. Geely’s global operation is so large and spread out that it has given Maersk Line and Damco full control of its entire logistics supply chain.
The Maersk Group is constantly looking for ways to grow its business. Innovation and the way in which it feeds into defining the future growth is one of Maersk Group’s priorities for this year and in this theme you can read about some of the ideas that are bringing benefits across the business.
China is adapting a “new normal” with slower growth. But this does not necessarily mean fewer opportunities. They are just changing and the new developments will hold plenty of opportunities for the Maersk Group due to the Group’s trusted name in China.
